"For me, fishing has always been the best way to relax and enjoy the nature in Northern Finland. Later, it became my passion to offer the same experience to other people!" Capt. Jarkko has been fishing these waters for more than 20 years. He’s been a captain for a year, and a fishing guide for 2 years. He's a total nature person, and loves fishing, so it just made sense for him to pursue this passion for the outdoors further! He's proud that he gets to run trips in such a stunning, untouched location, and can't wait to show it off to you. His favorite part of the job is introducing customers to these fishing grounds, helping them reel in their dream catch, and seeing the smiles on their faces!
